    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! The Maston: Trinity Bikes and COTA work party.

    Time to give it back. Let's get out there and protect our valuable riding resource!

    Saturday March 20th 9am - Trinity Bikes of Redmond is hosting the first ever work party at The Maston.

    This is a BLM approved/supported work party. We will be doing signage installation, fencing repair and trash clean up. This is a great opportunity to show the BLM our appreciation for our newest riding area.

    The plan:
    Meet at Trinity at 9am.
    We will head out to The Maston and breakup to work on various projects.
    Around 1PM we'll head back to Trinity for a BBQ!

    Corner of Hwy 126 (Highland Ave) and 13th
    811 SW 13th St, Redmond, OR 97756
    (541) 923-5650

    All COTA trail work events require the following safety measures:

    All participants are required to have the following protective clothing and equipment:
    •Sturdy shoes or boots
    •Gloves
    •Eye protection with clear or light colored lens.
    •Long pants.
    •Please bring a hydration pack with water and a snack.
    •Be sure to bring appropriate layers to accommodate whatever the weather may be.

    Due to COTA's insurance requirements and the inherent dangers of trail work we must implement the following policy regarding children at work events:

    •For anyone 14 years of age or younger, we require one parent, guardian or responsible adult for supervision of every four kids attending any COTA trail work events.
    •All minors under the age of 18 must have their parent or their guardian available to sign our waiver.

    Anyone who arrives for a work event may be turned away if they can not meet the above requirements.


    Political update: Word today from the BLM, they have finalized the Cline Buttes Recreation Plan. The document will be official in about a month. This gives much needed protection to all our trails on Cline Buttes and The Maston, plus future trails. Thanks to Greg Currie, Gavin Hoban and countless others at the BLM. Paul Thomsberg, Phil Meglasson, Mike Pulzone, Jim Karn and countless others with COTA. This has been a very long process, which gained mtn bikers protection of a great trail system!

    Perhaps interested trail workers in Bend can carpool to Maston and then to Trinity afterward.

    Thanks for posting Crash!

    Just a little update on today's work event, we had by my count 28 volunteers today at The Maston. The BLM brought 4 representatives and we had a VERY productive day. We added kiosks and picked up tons of trash, you wouldn't have believed the piles brought in. We even had four guys ride around with two BOB's picking up trash from the entire trail network. We also were able to put up some carsonite signs to help people stay on the network as well as repair fencing. A very good first day at The Maston. Jim Karn rallied a crew of 4 guys and pulled an heaping truckload of trash just off the top of Cline Buttes.

    I logged a conservative estimate of 135 hrs to the COTA website for our volunteers today.

    Trinity Bikes put on a huge BBQ and raffle that surpassed anyone's expectations! Thanks to Eric the owner of Trinity Bikes as well as Sean and Shane of their race team. Great effort guys! Redmond is lucky to have such a great shop and resource.


    Greg and Gavin at BLM thank you - a very proud day being able to give back to such a great area!
